This permanent MMLA panel invites abstracts that engage with collectives, communities, and print culture, widely conceived. In line with the conference theme, "border states," how does print culture give us a sense of community boundaries? How are collective identities formed, altered, or dismantled? What role does print culture play in shaping collectives or communities? How can we (re)conceive solidarity or community through the literary? This panel can engage with but is not limited to the following topics: literary criticism, critical theory (including theories of affect), aesthetics, propaganda, literary texts, and print culture more broadly.
The 9/11 and Popular Culture area is looking for abstract proposals for the MPCA conference in Chicago, IL, at the Hilton Rosemont/Chicago O'Hare from Thursday-Sunday, October 6-9.
The 9/11 Popular Culture area seeks essays that explore the convergence of post-9/11 themes in contemporary television, film, fiction, poetry, comics, and other artistic expression. I am especially interested in essays that approach issues of trauma theory and Islamophobia, as well as critiques of American exceptionalism and politics across artistic expression.
I welcome papers that analyze
the immediate American literary responses and considerations of the 9/11 terrorist attack (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Writing on the Wall);
